politician in washington is joe biden. this guy methodically, by the way, is preparing for a 2016 run. you don't happen to have the governor over to your residence in order for a weekend ceremony in the inaugural weekend. is not just by happen stance. you don't go to the iowa state dinner that is held here in washington over the weekend by accident. i think there is a sense of particularly in biden's world, a separate shock if you will from the president's political shock. he is looking at the he played. he is going to continue to play the back slapper role with congress. that's not the president. he hired joe biden to slap the backs of congress. that's not what the president wanted to do. i think biden is seeing it as an opportunity to build his own political resume for four years from now. this is happening and it's active and i think people in the city of new york under estimate joe biden. >> we never talk much about it but the obama campaign and obama for america was converted to organizing for action. my question member to the competition is what's that going to mea
election, for example, i think the most racially divisive comment of the entire election was joe biden's comment where he said if the republicans win, they are, quote, going to put y'all back in chains. that made my heart weep to see a sitting vice president playing to racial fears and playing on those issues. i think that's unfortunate. i don't think it has any place in politics. >> chuck hagel, you were very tepid on "meet the press" a couple of weeks ago. >> i was. >> now you've met with him, you're more comfortable, you'll support him? >> i am. >> what changed? >> i said on your show that i had real concerns. i spent 90 minutes with him. i asked him very specific questions on the things that troubled me. his answers were forth right. and they were answers that alayed my concerns. should we keep every option on the table to prevent a nuclear iran? yes. i went further. i said, do you think we can tolerate a nuclear iran? he said no. and i said to him, well, then, if we had to use military as the only choice, would you? he said yes. second, i asked him hezbollah and hamas, should they

's that that concerns me. as much as i listen to you and try to respect your argument, i agree with joe biden. i don't understand why you can't use a regular rifle, a regular pistol or regular handgun to defend yourself. why do you need these mass killing machines? >> here is the thing, piers, the fact this is the most popular rifle in the united states. there's 3 million people, as you know well, who own these. and they are quote/unquote, called assault weapons, however, the vast majority of law-abiding citizens who own them do not consider them for the purpose of assault but rather hunting. >> no one uses it for hunting. every hunting told me if you can't get them down in three shots, you're not a hunter, and if you hit them with 100 shots, you have destroyed the animal. that's not hunting. >> let me make the point really fast. ar-15s in virginia are actually not allowed to be used to hunt deer because they don't get the job done. >> right. >> they don't essentially kill deer right away. >> the only animal is a rabbit in virginia with an ar-15. >> do you ladies agree with automatic weapons being b
